After spending some time around the Sunshine Coast I realized I had to actually do some driving if I was going to make it up to Cairns in 6 days! On the third day of my trip I drove up to Bundaberg and Bargara. Despite getting a parking ticket, I had a nice day walking on the Bargara Esplanade and visiting the Bundaberg Barrel to learn how their famously delicious ginger beer is made. I also visited the Hummock Lookout, which is a little reserve on the top of a dormant volcano, and where you can get a view of the surrounding area.
I then hopped back into the car and drove up to Rockhampton. I was treated to yet another beautiful sunset!
